I understand how this works, but I just can't seem to find any of the three discoveries. Royal Convoy (which is listed in my database under ships section for some reason, but I don't remember the game telling me it shared this discovery) social chest and white whale.

I've looked up vids and all, I know what to look for...but I'm up to memory six, and I've seen NOTHING. Meanwhile, friends in my list have had this trophy on like memory 2 and 3. What gives?

People just tell me to sail around, it's what I've been doing. What are the specifics of this? I'm connected online and have made a uPlay account. I made the uPlay account after starting my game, if that's important to mention.
Ot is it a server issue? Is it my connection? What's the problem, why don't these events ever appear for me?

I'm wondering the same thing. For something supposedly so easy... Doesn't seem to be the case.

Samething happening here im in memory 10 and havent seen one of these events. im online and i have about 10 or 15 friends that play and most them have the sharing is caring trophy. we all help each other out in the fleet section by speeding up our ships so i know im on the server. Any advance would help.

Yes, the server is definitely working. Either it just has problems with these three events, or on the PS4 (there seem to be no reports of this taking so long on PS3) it just takes forever. I received a whale notification from one of my friends in my list who has the trophy. I went to the whale and it said that it shared it with all my friends, but none of them have received any notifications about said whale.
Seriously, what gives? :(
I've seen absolutely nothing else since then.

What confuses me the most is that you're supposed to be able to find these events even if no one in your list has the game.

I've been really aggravated with this for the past few days ; I've sunk about 60 hours in game since the release of the PS4...and still have not encountered a single one of these events. As a Trophy hunter, this has proven to be a huge nuisance because it's not skill controlled. Pure random should never be a source for achievements/trophies. I'd activated the code in the gamebox...but just recently made a uPlay account to see if that would have any effect. Still no love. I'm now in sequence 11...and just took out all 4 legendary ships yesterday. Been sailing around grabbing uncharted chests/fragments while keeping an eye out with the scope. Whole lotta nothing. :(

No social chests / white whale locations / royal convoys (not given by Tavern folks)

This is my first dive into the AC Franchise...needless to say, even with this annoyance the experience has been a real blast.

Hi!

I hope that someone can help me! ( I konw that I am a noob :rolleyes:)

How do I know if I am online? When I log into the game it says : logging into Uplay serveres or something. Does that meen that I am online then?

To get the Trophy here, are the special event marked blue on the map? Or can some of them bee grey?

Hope someone can help me out =)

It logs in automatically, if it can't log you in, it will let you know. The markers are blue. There are white ones, but those aren't part of that secret set.

So it's been a few days (approaching a week) since I'd posted having the same issue. Has anyone had any success?

I've since Completed the Story, and I'm working on Multiplayer right now.

Outside of 'Reach lvl 55 in MP' and 'play every game mode'...this is the only other trophy I'm lacking. And STILL have not encountered ANY of the 3 social/community treasures. Sailed approximately 450nmi and played 60 hours on the gamesave. :/

This is still a thing. Updated PS4 to 1.52 (not sure when it came out ; past week has been EXCEPTIONALLY busy with work stuffs) and launched the game...sailed around for the past hour+. And fully explored like 4 islands looking for chests (outskirts/combing back and forth across the main parts). Still nothing.

Hello? This going to get fixed soon? There an ETA? ANYTHING? Working in IT, I understand it takes time to fix things sometime...but this has been ongoing for...over a month now. A month. I'd be fired if I had an unresolved issue for over a month. :/

Figured I"d chime in... Been having the same issues. I've only seen one White Whale and no Royal Fleets or Chests since launch night on the PS4. I'm part way through Sequence 7 and have the entire map explored.
Would love to get an official explanation on this one. Is this something that needs to be patched?
What conditions must be met (if any) to get these things to spawn?

Jumping in to back you guys up. I'm playing ACIV on PC. This has been going on for weeks and Ubi hasn't said a word. I've completed the game and played it for about 110 hours now. No social anything. The Ubisoft Support Facebook page is useless. I opened a ticket directly with Ubisoft Support and nothing. These are the last challenges I have to do. The Ubisoft servers have been dodgy at best this weekend. Hope that means they're working on it.

This is just getting beyond ridiculous. Every single Assassin's Creed since 2 has had game breaking glitches for me. In Brotherhood I had to do 5 playthroughs due to trophies not unlocking, in Revelations I had to play the game twice and save up immense amounts of money because the trophy for buying all those crazy expensive books didn't unlock first time. In AC3 I could not access the multiplayer without registering my uplay account to an NA PSN account and then back to my EU account every time I wanted to play for 3 months until it started working properly. And now this with these dumb social events not letting me platinum the darn game? I have platinumed every Assassin's Creed (except the Vita one because no Vita and this one because of broken glitchy as heck game) as well as Far Cry 3. I'm a pretty loyal Ubisoft fan and I must say I'm looking forward to future releases but these constant game breaking glitches need to be stopped.

Please fix these social events it's really ruining my Christmas on top of everything else (at the start of each year I set a platinum goal by Christmas and this year it's 40 and I'm on 39 right now)

PS4 too and I had over 99 friends so I deleted them down to 99. I didn't want to do this but I didn't realise this is why I was having connection issues until near to the end of the game. So now I can access the Fleet etc but I have completed the story. I am going for the 100% mission constraints so replayed a mission and a white whale appeared randomly but when the mission ended it was not on the map and yet it said it had 2 hours left.

I dunno how I am meant to find a Convoy and a Chest. Will they even appear if I just sail around checking out Islands after I have completed and collected everything? Or shall I just wait for a patch. If that ever happens!

Is there a replayable memory where you can just sail about with most of the map unlock? Perhaps replaying a naval mission? It seems to be a problem with end game but I did get one to appear when I replayed a mission.

Update: My friends list has not exceeded 99 and I have now lost all singleplayer server access. No fleet or Leaderboard anymore. Please just fix the darn thing Ubisoft. We pay enough with collector's editions and DLCs just to get the main core game to work at all...

Very sad ubisoft. I tried my best to reach each trophy and i worked hard for it and now i cannot make platin because of this social ****.
Does anyone have this trophy on PS4?
Does ubisoft read this threads and give us info???

They won't acknowledge a problem or they can't admit to it but they may be working on a fix, they may not.

It's obvious they have just taken the PS3 / XBOX 360 versions and made them playable on new generation consoles without proper quality assurance testing. You would think with all the Pivot syncing problems that AC3 had (you needed less than 50 friends for that to work) that this would have been a constraint that was tested. Instead it seems they just presumed it would work.

New PS4 owner chiming in feeling cheated as well. Just beat the game, found every chest, animus fragment, and secret. Never ran into any of these. Signed into Ubisoft servers and uPlay account. Friends list is small but have about ten friends playing at the same time for the past two days.

This stinks of poor design and testing. Unless Ubisoft starts releasing their games when no one else does, I've decided after wasting a few hours sailing around finding nothing that I'll be prioritizing other publisher's releases over Ubisoft's going forward. Games like this aren't worth a full price purchase anyhow.

I play all night every night and will always speed up ships. I've come across multiple fleets, chests and whales as all I'm doing right now is plundering and collecting chests, fragments, what have you. Add me and I'll be sure to help where I can. I would appreciate the speeding of my ships as well.*

I've finished the game and EVERY challenge except the community events and "unlocking all of Kenways Fleet" ( which I'm still not sure about HOW to do that either...sigh ).
But right now I'm at 97% completion of the game and I'm literally sailing around trying to find ANY event and getting no where...sadly I'm feeling like I'm just going to have give up on 100% since it seems to me that the social element of the game is broken. And not enjoying the rinse and repeat while not getting ANY closer to 100%.

I wish they'd fix social events too but I wanted to respond to your keyway fleet question as I did complete this.

Once you unlock Kenway's Fleet (seems you have if you are 97% completion), you can access it from your hideout or from the captain's quarters on the Jackdaw.

The Kenway's Fleet UI is separated into three sections:

* Your fleet. You can buy up to 15 extra spots for ships with crystals (not sure the technical name, but it's the currency in the upper right). You get these crystals by defending trade routes. You get new ships by boarding them in the real game and choosing to send to your fleet. If you have an empty spot, the ship will be added to your fleet automatically. If not, you'll be asked what to do (salvage it, etc...) next time you load Kenway's Fleet. You can also repair and salvage ships from this part.

* Trade routes. This is the meat of the mini game. You'll start with a small number of regions (i.e. "Eastern Canada 02" or something like that). Each region is rated with a difficulty level and has several missions inside of it. To do a mission, you need enough resources for that mission and a ship that can carry enough cargo. To get resources, you should defend trade routes with battles. When battling, pay attention to chance of success. Your ships will fight automatically and have unlimited ammo. However, you can also use fire barrels to speed things up a little. You get more fire barrels by helping friends or sometimes as rewards in battles. When you are looking at missions to do, some will say something like "Will unlock: Rome". To get the "unlock all of Kenway's Fleet" challenge, you should complete every mission that unlocks something in this way. Also, you will see some missions with a "!" in front of the name. These will provide a reward like an outfit, treasure map, elite upgrade plan, or an art piece. You should do these as well. When selecting a mission, pay attention to success rate. If it isn't 100%, you can defend the trade route first to increase your chances of success. Also, defending the trade route will decrease the amount of time it takes to do the mission.

* Overview. This will show you two things: The ships you have on missions (along with how long the mission has left and if a friend has helped you) and a list of friends you can currently help. If you choose one of your friend's ships, you can choose to heal, speed up, or escort them. Not all options will always show up. I recommend choosing speed up unless their health is really low then you may choose to heal or escort. Escorting takes one of your ships. Speeding up doesn't cost you anything and considerably helps your friends (which means they'll be more likely to help you). After helping a friend, you get 1 fire barrel.

TL;DR: Do the missions that say "Unlock: XYZ" to unlock all of Kenways Fleet and do all the missions with "!" on the front to get all the collectables.

Reposting advice I got from Ubisoft earlier yesterday.

I just called Ubisoft support at 1 (888) 824-7038. I had to wait in the queue for a long while (at slot 1 the whole time), but eventually I got through. A very helpful guy at the other end of the line heard me describe the issues I've run into trying to get social events to appear (zip after 100% completion and nearly all challenges done), and he confirmed that there have been multiple tickets open on the issue with only a small variance in the details.

The support guy confirmed that the issue has been raised to the development team, but also confirmed that said team is pretty much on vacation for at least another week or two due to the holidays. I then asked about the chances of social events on PlayStation 4 being looked into and fixed (I brought up Assassin's Creed III's issues as a counterexample), and he believed that the odds were good but couldn't guarantee anything.

He recommended that I encourage friends and everyone seeing this issue call 1 (888) 824-7038 to open tickets.

Basically, triaging bugs like this is a numbers game at Ubisoft; rather than a quality bar, the deciding factor of what gets looked into (and fixed) and what gets ignored is based on traffic, pure and simple. Resource allocation to a bug only makes sense if a known issue gets enough volume--otherwise pulling developers aside to fix a released title just isn't worth it. (This last bit is my interpretation.)

So here's my post. And I recommend calling in just to get a human response to what many of us are seeing as a gaping hole in an otherwise excellent release. Maybe I was just lucky, but the guys running support seem to be invested and attentive--makes me wish they had the final call in deciding when an Ubisoft release is actually ready.

Same problem here, in database it also says connect with your friends to share stats most of the time, while they are online.
Alot of friends found social events and said they shared it, but nothing appeared on my screen.

Close to the platinum now and tired of wasting hours without knowing if my game is glitched or not. And even knowing if this trophy is currently possible to get for me.

I got one social chest within the first three hours back around Nov 26th, but absolutely nothing since then. I've added a couple dozen fellow AC4 players on my friends list and that hasn't helped. I keep looking at coordinates people post, but nothing shows up even trying that "quit, go to MP, go back to SP" trick people suggested. Why did the developers make this so obnoxious?

I have got the same problem on the ps4, all social events, chests, royal convoys, white whales have dried up for at least the past 3 days and none of the sharing works with my friends. Just raised the issue with ubisoft like so many have done already if you haven't done so drop them a message as hopefully the more issues raised the quicker a solution can be found for all.

Like others, now need only the 'Sharing is Caring' trophy for the platinum. Have found 2 convoys and 2 white wales, but not a single social chest in over 60 hours of play. There's also a convoy showing up on the map but when you sail to it there is nothing there and the convoy icon just stays there forever. Guessing that means the social stuff is well and truly glitched for me.

As someone said back on page 1, trophies should never EVER be tied to random/online events, its just asking for problems like this. Same for requiring ridiculous multiplayer trophies for the platinum (not a worry for me in this particular case as I really enjoy the multiplayer and have done all those trophies but it simply should not happen or at the very least, make it as simple as playing each multiplayer mode once or something). Seriously blows my mind that devs keep persisting with this crap.

Found the whale 4 times, maybe 2 convoys, but I don't know when one actually appeared. No chests. Read somewhere that you can follow someone outside your mansion in pirates cove, and she'll point to one. The character is there, near a leap of faith just off the patio, and she is highlighted, but I've followed her several times to no avail. No idea what this character is for, but it is obviously programmed in to lead you to something... In any case, I could use some fleet help if anyone is interested.

I have been playing for 48 hours, ALYWAS online, and I have found a single community event. I've been playing from the 24 of December if it might be of any help in understanding the issue. As I'm a "trophy hunter", it really bothers me.
And you should agree with me that's IMPOSSIBLE to NEVER get a community event in 48 hours of game and after completing it and collecting everything else.

I got 32 friends, all looking for the social events, so far i Think only 3 of them were lucky enough to complete the challenge. I do not know what is wrong but more and more ppl start to say that switching servers by going to multiplayer and back to single is helping them finally get that trophy.

Get this fixed as soon as possible it is the most annoying trophy I have ever seen and its ruining the overal game experience. Im hating this game because of that : )

It appears that you must also be friends on uPlay. Last night a friend and I divided and conquered by sailing around. I found a whale and it didn't show up on his map. Did the switch to MP back to SP a few times and nothing. We logged on to uPlay, became "friends" and boom the whale showed up as his boat was in the vicinity. Later we found a convoy and it showed up immediately.

40 hours and I have 0 social events!!! I really enjoy this great game, but this "social" things are frustrating instead of helping!

This is the response I got from ubisoft if people are still waiting for a reply to community problems (events, chest, royal convoys etc).

''1) For more information about social event please find in attached link below : http://blog.ubi.com/assassins-creed-iv-black-flag-community-schedule-and-news/ 2) Thank you for reporting this issue. This problem is currently under investigation by the development team. When any additional information becomes available, it will be made available in the game's forums at http://forums.ubi.com and our FAQ.''

Same issue. I found them easily in PS3, but now on PS4 the social events are not working. The same friends, the same Uplay and PSN accounts. Something's wrong in the PS4 version of the game.

Hey. I haven't found any of the three social events and the only reason I know they exist is because of the "sharing is caring" trophy I found when I tried to platinum the game. This is the only single player trophy I have left and if anyone could help me that would be great. I was also wondering if the social and community events have stopped working for ps4 users since I've only seen one community challenge and that was for looting warehouses and that challenge only lasted a couple days after Christmas (I got the game for Christmas). My user name on psn is iix-MAYHA3M if anyone would like to help. Any information for why this isn't working for me is also welcome. Thanks

Agreed, it is very annoying. It has placed massive doubts in my mind about watchdog when it is released should I get it on day one or wait a few months until all the major bugs are fixed?

Dear Ubisoft,
Your community events are not working -- they never come up. In this type of situation, it is much better for them to be too frequent than too rare. If you are not able to fix this correctly, please at least change the problem to the other extreme. People will be much happier and you should be able to manage that much.

Right now I've completed all the SP trophies, except for the social event one. 52 hours of gameplay, always online, never found any not even once.
Can't you guys make them last for 24 hours, so we know where to look at in order to get this trophy? To be honest I'm getting quite frustrated...

It seems most people are having issues with this, i have so far only managed to see the white whale once and as yet no other social events have popped up. I've read that a lot of people are asking Ac4 players (ps4) to add to there friends list as this will produce social events. So will give this a try, my ps4 id BRUNTMEISTER_1

After further investigation with my friends, it seems that this problem occurs ONLY for the PS4 version. PS3, Xbox360 and XboxOne do not incur in this issue. Even if I find them with the PS3 version of my friend, which is in my friend list, it does not show on my map even though we found the whale a few seconds earlier.
If it may be of any help to the support team.

3rd week without a fix. Seriously, just make a patch to give that achievement for free to everyone. It will be much easier and much faster than a random fix that in 3 weeks wasn't even solved. Yet a new DLC was released anyway. That is being a decent company indeed.

This. Either patch out the trophy or just grant it to everyone. I've needed only 1 social chest for the platinum for the last month, haven't had a single occurence in 60+ hours with 100% sync. Enough is enough.

Man,I really can't believe it. I finally found all three types of events, royal convoys, white whale and social chest but the trophy DIDN'T came to me. I found a total of 5 whales, 3 convoys and 2 chests. I even had many of them at the same time at my map. Did someone else have the same problem? Jesus, this is the worst thing Ubi EVER created. I'm really frustrated with it.

I have had no problems finding white whales or royal convoys but am struggling finding social chests. If anyone here has tips on how to find them or specific locations (in addition to coordinates) I would be thankful for the help!

Sorry if this has already been posted but a couple tips:
1. http://www.jp.guihard.net/IMG/jpg/map-social-events.jpg
2. I noticed the white whales and royal convoys didn't pop up for me automatically. You have to look at them w/ the spyglass. Especially for the white whales, go to one of the locations on the map and look w/ your spy glass. It will say "white whale, level 3" and it should show up on your map thereafter.

I switched servers too (PS4) and found two White Whales within about 15 minutes, one at 198,122 and the other I think east of Anotto Bay.

Also just found a Social Chest at 901,488.

Here's a map of all the spawn locations; I needed the last Chest for the Abstergo Challenge so I just visited all locations until I found one.

Surely something can be done by now. It's been out so long and I've been trying so hard to get this trophy pretty much constantly. It's really ruined December and January for me so I'm hoping it will be fixed by February. I tried everything. I reduced my friends list from 120 to 45 at one point and nothing. Added back up to around 91 now. I can access fleets but just no social event. Whenever I try to contact I'm told it isn't their fault and so is everyone else I'm asked.

@SaroenX You should give acinitiates.com a try.

https://acinitiates.com/forum/category/5/page/1

Just find the thread that pertains to your platform. Every now and then someone will post coordinates that lead to a social event. You don't even need to add them to any friends list. Just make sure you check the thread regularly before the event expires.
